Why I Joined The Get Lean By Summer 16-Week Buddy Challenge
Thursday, March 03, 2011
I have been a Sparks member for a long time. There have been times when I found myself logging on and mindlessly clicking "get points" and that is NOT why I joined this challenge although posting this blog IS part a bonus part portion of the challenge. I wonder how many people sit in front of their computer and click away attaining spark trophies and yet neglecting the trophy we are all given because our body truly is our temple as trite as that may sound.
But I digress. Why did I join this particular challenge. :::silence...thinking::: Because I am sitting in the suburbs of the #24 sparking city in the country in what still seems like the dead of winter and days go by and I don't see or speak to anyone. I have a library of books and another of DVDs, a Wii in a box and DVDs to go with that and yet I am not challenged and motivated. I want to be. I need to be. I need to be part of a group that cares about me and that I care about back. Like minded people who support and encourage each other and kick each other in the butt when we need it and boy do I need it. I need to know that if I stopped posting tomorrow, someone would notice because my presence made a difference and that I mattered in the life of someone. I don't want to be just an avatar or screen name to someone in another state or country. I'm one of those people who believe that the people we meet here can and DO become real friends and we owe it to each other to bring the spark to one another!!!!!
